Summary: Ancient Maya calligraphy, the subject of exciting breakthroughs in decipherment, is revealed here to be among the finest and most beautiful in the world.

Coe vividly portrays the world of the artist-calligraphers, who were both men and women. He decodes their depiction in Maya art and describes the mediums in which they worked, their tools, and techniques. Their masterpieces, painted or carved on stone, stucco, wood, shell, bone, in screenfold books, and on magnificent ceramic vessels, are reproduced in superb photographs, many taken by Justin Kerr with his innovative rollout camera that captures images from cylindrical surfaces with perfect clarity.

Inhaltsangabe: Two experts decipher Mayan writing in terms of its meaning and aesthetics, counting it as one of the world's great calligraphic traditions. Coe (anthropology emeritus, Peabody Museum of Natural History, Yale U.) and Kerr, whose rollout camera revolutionized the study of Mayan pictorial ceramics and their texts, explore the script's origins, character, and writing techniques as well as the exalted world of the Maya artist-scribes who kept the holy books. Escribanos continued the role, though not the hieroglyphics, in post-conquest Mexico. Includes 117 color plates, other text figures, and notes on a type of Maya Rosetta Stone. 9.75x13<">. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

From Publishers Weekly: Gorgeously illustrated and relating a fascinating linguistic tale, this look at the art of classic Maya scribes by anthropologist Coe and photographer Kerr includes the latest research into the deciphering of this mysterious writing. Maya scribes were both men and women, the authors write, and were much appreciated in a world where literature, art and mathematics had achieved unusual heights. The Classic Maya period lasted from about A.D. 250 until about A.D. 900, and its cities included Palenque in Mexico, Tikal in Guatemala and Copan in Honduras. Although the Olmecs in Mexico were the first in the hemisphere to have writing, the Maya, according to the authors, were "the only pre-conquest people in the New World to have a writing system sophisticated enough to express anything that was in their language." Maya writing, carved on stones such as jade, traced on pottery or painted on walls, deals almost exclusively with historical events--notably the constant wars waged between the city-states. Mythical characters appear, but mostly as part of paintings that represent actual historical figures, their places in the rich dreamworld of the Maya as well as where they rank in the pecking order of their cities indicated by fantastic headdresses. The authors mostly manage to keep the discussion accessible to the lay reader, but occasionally they do veer off into territory where only linguists would feel at home. Generally, the explanations are clear and compelling and the concrete examples of how Maya language developed and was rendered into art by scribes will shed light not only on language but on history and culture.

Buchbeschreibung Harry N Abrams, New York, 1998. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Fine. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 240 pages with 148 maps, figures, illustrations, 117 color plates, index and bibliography. Folio (13" x 10") bound in original publisher's red cloth with gilt lettering to spine in pictorial jacket. Photographs by Justin Kerr. First edition. Michael Coe begins by examining the origins and character of the script. He then explores the world of the scribes and "keepers of the holy books," decoding their depiction in Maya and describing the mediums in which they worked, their tools and techniques. The artist-calligraphers-both men and women-held such high status in Classic Maya society (AD 250-900) that they lived in their own palaces and worshiped their own patron gods. They painted or carved on stone, stucco, wood, shell, bone and in screen fold books, and, most strikingly of all, on magnificent ceramic vessels used as offerings to the dead or to gods. Their masterpieces are reproduced her in remarkable photographs by Justin Kerr, many taken with his innovative roll-out camera that captures images from cylindrical surfaces with perfect clarity. This richly illustrated volume by two renowned experts is the first to make full use of the latest research and the first to explore the privileged lives of the Maya scribes and their distinctive artistic achievements. Condition: Very good to fine in a near fine jacket. Buchnummer des Verkäufers A2035
